Don’t let the French name fool you—these might be the quickest, easiest desserts you’ll ever make (and if you’re wondering, it’s pronounced “poh-deh-crem”). Pots de crème are surprisingly simple baked custards, and this indulgent chocolate version is the ideal for a date night at home. They’re sophisticated, rich and elegant and sized just right.
